    WSO Publishes Global Stroke Fact Sheet 26.02.2019 The World Stroke Organization is proud to share its most recent and much expected publication: the Global Stroke Fact Sheet.  The 10-page document overviews the best available scientific evidence to provide reliable and up to date data on stroke and its impact around the world. Using reliable and consistent stroke data to support stroke advocacy helps to build awareness of the scale of the disease and supports the call for urgent action at global, regional and national levels.  The values in the document have all been extracted from the most current Global Burden of Disease Stroke Statistics Worldwide for the year 2016. The present document and all its subsequent revisions are reviewed and approved by the WSO leadership.  We hope that Global Stroke Fact Sheet will be a valuable resource and a useful point of reference in your work, practice, and research.  We invite you to share the document with your colleagues, students and partners.
